Flora by Gucci Perfume

I'm really picky when it comes to perfume so I'm really glad that I had a chance to try this amazing Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia perfume. Even after the first spray I instantly fell inlove with it and I couldn't be more happier that after a long time I've found my staple fragrance. I'm really bad at describing smells, but I can say that this perfume is really fresh and at the same time sweet. It has notes of white flowers and a slight hint of pears.
Speaking about the price, it's not the cheapest one, but I honestly think it's worth the price because it really lasts all day long so you don't need to top up every half an hour. In my opinion this perfume is for everyone because it's not irritative and is really soft. Just love it!

Hair Care Empties

I've been trying a lot of products since I've chopped my hair off and just want to keep them as healthy as possible.

When my hair is still wet I really like to spray them with Gliss Kur Ultimate Repair conditioner for easier brush. Of course, while the hair is damp I brush them with wide tooth comb, otherwise it can cause a considerable damage. This conditioner really does wonders not only it helps to detangle my hair, but also it makes my hair look healthier and so smooth and silky. And the smell is divine. I can't even tell you how much I love this product! Already repurchased another bottle to replace it.

From time to time, I also use Keratin Oil which is amazing in making your hair feel soft and really weightless as it says on the bottle. It  really does help to tame frizzy and unruly hair like mine and it smells wonderful. I'm glad that I gave it a try and now I can enjoy much better looking hair.

VO5 frizz free creme is something that I keep repurchasing over and over again because it's exellent either in making your hairstyle look very sleek and done up and protecting your hair when blowdrying or straightening it. Also a big fan of VO5 products' smell. In my opinion smell really matters in hair products. I might be a little bit weird, but thats the way it is. Haha!

Recommending to try these products and I think it's about time for me to go shopping and grab a few bottles of them again!

Favourite Picks for the Face

To begin with, I want to share my love for my new discovery - Catrice All Matt Plus. It's an amazing consistency and a light coverage foundation which is totally buildable if you want it to be a bit heavier. I love it because it easilly goes on my face making it look flawless and not cakey at all and also it cancels out the redness of my face. As you can tell from the label, it has mattifying properties which is amazing for my skin because it can get really oily throughout the day. It does stay all day looking perfect and I really really love it!

After applying my foundation I usually put on my Manhattan Wake Up concealer to cover my undereye circles and spots if I have any that day. Really love the consistency of it and the application is really easy as it comes with doe foot applicator so I just dab it wherever I have any imperfections on my skin and I'm good to go! As it is a little bit ligher than my foundation it sometimes works as a highlighter for me.

Rimmel Stay Matt powder is a great cmpliment for these two. When I finally have my foundation and concealer on the powder come in handy. It just finishes all look making it look even more matt ( you can't get enough of matt on your skin haha). I usually put it in my bag if I need to top up throughout the day.

The Nudes | Maybelline New York

I had this pallete for a few months now and, to be honest, I'm quite enjoying it so far. My mom's cousin (don't know who is she for me, like my aunt or something? Let me know haha) got me this palette as a gift when she came back to visit us in Lithuania. I tried it right away and with a lot of hopes for this to work really well I was slightly disappointed bacause of pigmentation. Thoses shades are really gorgeous, but they are so light and soft when applied. But beside this you can really make it work when doing your everyday makeup for subtle and soft look. There are just two shades (the darkest two on the right) which could add a little bit of color pop on your eyes and quite a few matt and shimmery colors which looks amazing combined together. So, all things considered, it's really lovely pallete to have your hands on. 

What is your everyday makeup picks for the eyes?

Face of the Day

Just wanted to show you my makeup for today. We are having girls' night in just watching movies and having some fun so I went for subtle and soft look with light pink on the whole eyelid and a tiny bit of light brown shade in the corners of my eyes. For lips I chose my Catrice lip laquer. I'm inlove with this shade. Such an amazing color for daytime.

What are your plans for the weekend? :)

Favourite Everyday Mascara

So, recently I went shopping and stopped in a drugstore. As you can say from my previuous blog posts, I'm a huge fan of drugstore products because most of them are so lovely and really great value for money. This time I decided to buy this beauty. Everyone was talking about this L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara long long time ago and I know, I was living under the rock not trying it out. But, finally, I'm here spreading the love for this one. 
As I have really short, stubby eyelashes, this is bloody amazing! First of all, it doesn't leave you with those weird clumpy eyelashes looking more like a spider legs and second, the applicator does really make your eyelashes look longer and, definitelly, the eyes look much bigger and brighter. Just one drawback for me that the color of this mascara is brown. As always wasn't aware of buying the wrong color mascara. Silly me. But, actually, I find it really gorgeous when applied in day time when you don't need such a bold look.

What mascara do you use on your daily basis?

Salon International Exhibition

As a hair and media makeup student I was offered to go to an exhibition called Salon International. It's an event where all the hairdressers (okay, not all, but most of the famous hairdressers such as Patric Cameron) gather to show people what's fashionable and popular at the moment. Also there is lots of hair products like high quality shampoos, conditioniers, nurising oils and so on. What is more, there were lots of hairdresser's professional scissors, hair extentions and other hairdresser's equipment. There you could even see your hair through a really powerful microscope and see how damaged your hair is! There was a big big queue so I didn't have a chance to see the condition of my hair. I'm not really interested in those hair thingies, but luckily I found a venue where all the makeup stuff were and then I felt blessed like never before... Haha. As you can tell all the things there very expensive and I didn't bring much money with me to buy everything I wanted, so I just had a look and a lot of things I'm going to buy on the internet website the companies have. It was really amazing and pleasant trip where I saw amazing shows and catwalks and had a look at those incredible catwalk models with perfect body and a flawless skin and everything... Things like this exhibition inspires me to try new things and don't be afraid of experimenting. 
Oh and I forgot to mention one thing... The people! Purple, pink, blue, green hair people with short black dresses and platform boots were the one more thing I admire the most. I just like the way they express themselves, the way they dress and style their hair. It's just something amazing! I'm thinking of dying my hair in the near future because I've got bored of my plain, blonde, natural hair and I want maybe something lylac or purple in my hair like dying the ends of my hair. Do you think it would look good? I think to dye with temporary tint which I can easily wash off in a few hair washes. I want to tint my hair, but I'm a bit afraid of the end result and if the color suits me.
So that's a recent update of my life and what's was going on lately. What are you guys up to?
